For it was in the ten thousandth year of the reign of the great city of Atlan that I sat at the feet of Thoth. For I was Hypheros the Writer, and I wrote all that Thoth said. It was Thoth who taught me both the way of the sword and the way of the pen. He allowed me a choice. In the end, I chose ink and pen. For that is Thoth, the creator of words and magic. Magic is words. Words are magic.
